Poem: Life in my Hand

 

 

I can’t keep up with the world
Since it tries to act as a double edge sword
The more I kill the enemy
The more it pierces through me
In the end, I don’t have anything to defend
In the end, should I pretend
Not to be hurt
And just smile
When in fact I am about to die
The string of faith is not so strong
They break as you walk along
Rip apart when you start creating art
And when you close yourself inside
Do you think you will die with pride?
The sword keeps pushing inside of you no matter what you do
No matter what you think
No matter what you feel
In the end, you’ll see what’s fake and what’s real
Emotions and facts combined in life’s artifacts
When you see one run
Because harm will be done with one look
That’s all that it took
That’s all what it ever takes when you gaze
And that’s not the end of the story
Because you are driving a freaking lorry
To an unknown destination
Through the forest of procrastination
The mountains of your desperation
And the roads of the great depression
Yet you are there sitting on your comfy chair
Goin’ 80 miles per hour
Screaming about life being sour
The favorite thing about it is not knowing where you are going
Because if you knew, what would you change, what would you be ever able to do?
I don’t know me, I don’t know you
What I really want to do is create myself
Mold the me into whatever I want to be
Stay true to the values I hold so dearly
And preserver
Life is not all about defense or attack
Even if the double end sword will get me one day
I will be able to say my last words
They will echo to the chamber of life and death, in between
Do you know what I mean?
It will reach the end of the world, the end of the universe
Because it will be like a fire from a verse
It will hit deep and wake the gods up from their sleep
Then, you ask me, what will happen?
What will become of you?
What will become of me?
I don’t know a thing about you, but I will go out smiling, what will you do?

Poem: My heart is always running

 

 

My heart is always running
Its always on a rough path
And I always hope it doesn’t trip and falls It already has fallen so many times
But always getting up
Always running
Because its a heart that doesn’t stop
Its my heart that I push forward
And with each fall it gets up
It gets stronger
And starts running towards you
The one that will be there when it falls
Than our hearts will be one
And they run , they run towards a new goal
Reaching for the stars
We will be one

Poem: I won’t sleep tonight

I won’t sleep tonight

So are we staying this way?
What can I say I felt in love with you
And now my heart beats only for you
I wanted this since a long time
But nobody was close to me
And if they got close to me, they would fly away
Because of the differences, the irregularities
But I was still breathing
Like a teenage dreamer
What can I say I’ve always thrown love away
Yeah you know, I wasn’t that though tho
But I got infected by you
I was always fearless
But when I am around you, it’s like I am a hero in a movie
I want to protect you
What can I say
So are we staying like this
And I always said “Love won’t find it’s way to me”
But than it hit me
When you found me
Love found it’s way
They said god blessed me
Good life, Good looks and money
But I never cared about god anyway
So I threw all that away
I just wanted to be me
Can you see the real me?
So if you are staying, just say
I am still breathing, my heart is still beating
But it something wrong with it
I look at you and know the reason why
My heart skips a beat or two when I think about you
And I feel free
I told my mother I’d grow up one day
But it ain’t to today
What can I say
I am still breathing
Falling in love with you every evening
And I spent so many sleepless nights because of you
When I thought I’d fall asleep I tough about you
My heart went racing and I stayed awake
The colors of the world I never seen before, I see in you
And whats the craziest part of this is you
It was all planned out until you walked into my life
And than the plan was just blown away by the wind of change
I had to rearrange my whole life
Started to rotate around you and my mind was gone
The only thing I think about, is you
And I can’t keep myself away from you
So we are staying this way
Let the wind blow as away
Together floating flying away
And again I won’t sleep tonight
